Yeah but he said he's dual booting. If something happens, I send it in for service, and they see a non-standard OS, they'll void the warranty and refuse to service the machine. I'm going to get an extended warranty and I don't want to compromise it. If it were a laptop, I could use a restore disk, but, alas, I don't have that luxury. With a flash drive, I can jusst remove it.
Strangley though, the more I think about booting using usb, the less I seem to care. If eric93se's recomended model has it, then it's a bonus. If not, oh well.
